In his debut memoir, Joe Buck talks about his life, his career, and his memorable relationship with his father, legendary sportscaster Jack Buck.

Sports fans see Joe Buck everywhere: broadcasting one of the biggest games in the NFL every week, doing the World Series every year, announcing the Super Bowl every three years. They know his father, Jack Buck, is a broadcasting legend and that he was beloved in his adopted hometown of Saint Louis.
 
Yet they have no idea who Joe really is. Or how he got here. They don't know how he almost blew his career. They haven't read his funniest and most embarrassing stories or heard about his interactions with the biggest sports stars of this era.

They don't know how hard he can laugh at himself—or that he thinks some of his critics have a point. And they don't know what it was really like to grow up in his father's shadow. Joe and Jack were best friends but it wasn't that simple. Jack gave Joe his broadcasting start but it wasn't that easy. And Joe's childhood as the son of a famous broadcaster was not as idyllic as it seemed.

In Lucky Bastard, Joe takes the reader into the broadcast booth and into his childhood home. Hilarious and occasionally heartbreaking, this is a book that any sports fan will love.

Yeah, he’s lucky, I guess you’d say. He’s just not that interesting. This is a tell-all autobiography of a rich, marginal celebrity, a sportscaster. Sprinkle it with obscenities and a few profanities, drop a lot of names, address some personal issues and you’ve got the recipe.
